Severe storms seem to be everywhere lately. We've been getting some pretty intense rain here and even a little bit of hail. The thunder here in the southern United States hits differently than other places I've lived. It booms and rolls across the sky, rumbling the ground and shaking buildings. It's no wonder so many stories and legends cropped up over the years around storms.

I started reading Fairy Tale by Stephen King, and in the way of...coincidences...🧐 I've been encountering fairy tales all over the place—including a friend of mine bringing them up all the way in Japan.

Book cover for Fairy Tale by Stephen King
"...a seventeen-year-old boy who inherits the keys to a parallel world"

It's interesting to see just how many contemporary stories are heavily influenced (or retellings) by old fairy tales. There are even hidden fairy tale influences in stories that you may not even realize. I've spotted some in my novel WIP recently that I didn't even know were there.
